Florida Democrats have until August 26 to decide who they will support in the state's governor's race: Charlie Crist or Nan Rich.

Former governor Crist has switched parties and is now running for his old job as a Democrat.

Rich is the former state Senate leader who’s been running for the job for more than two years.

Conventional wisdom holds that Crist will win the August 26 primary to become his new party's standard-bearer against Scott. Rich's supporters, however, object to the notion that Crist has the nomination locked up.

Nan Rich joined Melissa Ross via telephone to discuss what sets her campaign apart from Crist's.
